The Autobiography of a Clown


Published July 25, 2014


LibriVox recording of The Autobiography of a Clown by Isaac Marcosson.
Read in English by Lee Smalley
This "as told to" autobiography of Jules Turnour is based on a popular article that appeared in the Saturday Evening Post in 1909. Turnour relates through Marcosson his personal history and that of the circus, both in Europe and the United States. By recounting touching, amusing, and heartbreaking events that he experienced or witnessed, he demonstrates his love of circus life and his craft. "As soon as I hear the music of the band...and the indescribable movement of the crowd toward the big tent...I am stirred to action, the weariness falls away like magic, and I am young again." Photographs of Mr. Turnour are interspersed throughout the text, which is accessible at http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/46139 ~ Lee Smalley
